Picture 070

If you had asked, I would tell you I’d rather first buy my daughter a dress for a bar mitzvah, not a funeral.  But like many aspects of life, I don’t get a choice about which coming of age event will come first in her life.

It’s a complicated feeling; our parental desire to shield her from witnessing such tragedy, combined with our inability to any longer control, reframe, muffle.  There it is, life in it’s starkest.

I wish you a kind heart and the ability to, as much as possible, maintain your sense of self.  Bon voyage.
